Forterra has donated £500 worth of Hi-Vis vests, hats and construction toys to children at Grange Park Pre-School in Northampton.
In the winter months staying safe and visible in the dark while on foot is important, especially for young children, hence Forterra were keen to provide the donation. The pre-school has already used the items for school trips and to help educate the children about road safety.
Sarah Crofton from Grange Park Pre-School, said: “The children have been so excited by this donation and it is inspiring them to talk about the dangers of vehicles when near a road. They have already used their hi-vis for a trip to the letterbox!
“They are very enthusiastic about the construction themed toys too, and it’s because of this that we have arranged for real woodwork to be brought in for them to explore.”
Stephen Harrison, chief executive of Forterra, said: “We hope our donation will start conversations about the importance of road safety and promote key messages on how to keep safe. We also hope they will enjoy the construction themed toys!
“We aspire to make a positive difference in the local community wherever we can, in this instance we hope they are able to learn early valuable lessons, especially for children who will soon start walking to and from school.”
